7 Lovely Irish Dinners You Should Make This Week


By Cooking Panda

St. Patrick’s Day is coming! So, make sure you are prepared!! Heck, you can even have a whole week of Irish fare leading up to the occasion if you want. No complaints here.

From meat and veggies to potatoes and cheese, these delightfully hearty dinners are sure to leave you satisfied:

1. Irish Chicken Pot Pie

I just adore the idea of cooking these in single-serve mason jars. It’s so cute, easy and tasty!

2. Cheesy Irish Potato Pancakes

These savory potato pancakes are packed with cheese, garlic and chives for a deliciously flavorful spin on the classic Boxty. You’ll love them for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner!

3. Irish Pan Haggerty Potatoes

This casserole-type of dinner marries sweet, savory sauteed onions, sharp, creamy cheese layered with thinly sliced potatoes for an easy but filling dinner.

4. Slow Cooker Maple Mustard Corned Beef

Who doesn’t love corned beef! Why not take it to the next level by ditching that pickling spice it comes with and making your own version that’s just slightly tangy and slightly sweet? I absolutely love this with some glazed carrots and parsnips.

5. Irish Colcannon

This creamy mashed potato dish mixed with cabbage and onion is about as simple as they come, but it’s super delicious, and it’s the perfect side for your corned beef.

6. Grilled Corned Beef and Fontina Sandwiches

This one is great for leftover corned beef for days to come, so don’t be afraid to cook an extra pound of meat — the payoff is nice.

7. Pretzel Ring Beer Cheese Dip

Who can resist some beer cheese? I can totally imagine eating this whole dish by myself (can’t you?), although it would also be perfect if you’re having company over for some drinks.

Looking for some cocktails to enjoy with your festive dinner? Here are some delightfully classy ways to play around with Irish whiskey. Cheers!
